Publisher Description

'His most gripping thriller to date.' Mirror

Hurricane Katrina has transformed New Orleans into a violent wasteland. Criminals capitalise on the devastation as survivors wait for help that never comes.

David Robicheaux - his city in ruins -- is tasked with investigating the murder of a pair of looters: is it a simple case of 'stand-your-ground', or something altogether darker? The dead men's accomplice holds the key but he has disappeared to escape the people hunting him.

As Robicheaux uncovers a brutal catalogue of greed, torture and murder, his own family is threatened, and the ravaged city provides the perfect stage for a final confrontation between good and evil.

'A beautifully written howl of rage.' Time Out

Fans of Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly and Don Winslow will love James Lee Burke:

The Tin Roof Blowdown

What a wonderful book which is up to the consistently pleasing standard of James Lee Burke. I had the pleasure of reading this book as my first iBook. I read it as we travelled through France, Belgium and Morocco and finished it on our return to Australia. The imagery of what happened to New Orleans as a result of Katrina was matched by some of the experiences we had in these countries. A long life to you Mr. Burke and may you continue to enthral us all with your wonderful stories.
